Thank you for the kind words.  Lainy, my MIL, hasn't decieded what she wants to do, she's thinking of......... riding this out.... Kaiser has contacted her several times, I think she is avoiding them. Our family has gone through Cancer, 7 years ago my husband Alex, Josi's oldest son passed away from brain cancer and he went through chemo, it was very hard on our family.  I have asked her if I can help her with getting a second opinion and she has agread I am so grateful that she is trusting me with her information.  I want to find the best doctors and hospitals in CA.

Thank you so much
Liz

Hello everyone,

My name is Liz, my mother in-law Josi, 70 years old. was recently diagnosed with CC.  She has Cirrhosis pt (non viral origin) with a mass up to 12.5 cm in the R liver with PV thrombosis.  We belong to Kaiser, and are seeking a second opinion, the doctors at Kaiser are saying that its Locally advanced CC, and it is inoperable and wants to start her on Chemo with 5FU base regimens HTN/Hyperlipidemia: f/u by PMD.  not sure what all this means.

We are in the process of a second opinion with the non-profit org.  The Second Opinion in San Frsncisco, has anyone had any experencie with this org? we live in Sacramento CA, are there any top places to get a second opinion regarding CC.  She was diagnosed in August 2012 she has not started any treatments as of date.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post.  God Bless to you all.
